    Feeling Safe In the Peoples' Republic of Illinois

    Earlier today, I unloaded my Glocks, emptied the magazines and dutifully secured them to ensure compliance with Illinois law as we make our 161-mile journey to the safe haven of Indiana. We stopped at the Welcome Center and were greeted with two signs and a military helicopter circling overhead. The first sign announced that the center was closed due to budget cuts. The second one informed us that the water supply was coliform-contaminated and undrinkable.

    If at all possible I avoid Illinois like the plague. I'm even willing to go the long way around just to avoid crossing their borders.

    I get paid by the mile to go there. If I could, I'd charge double for the miles in that state.

    Well, after living in Illinois for 38 years and paying outrageous taxes, I left... I ran actually.

    I would love to think I was the straw that broke the camels back. But I'm awake now

    $4,000.00 / year property taxes on a $55,000.00 piece of crap house and neighborhood.

    $100.00 a year plus license plate sticker on each pick up truck.

    Now you got me started

    City, county, sales and state taxes almost 25% of my bill on cell phones, trash pick up, water and sewer
    I think, therefore I am...

    Illinois has a lot going for it if you pretend Chicago and its Democratic machine politics doesn't exist. Oh, I almost forgot you also have to pretend Springfields good-ole-boys, business as usual Capitol crew don't exist either. Come to think of it, what's left is pretty much like every other state only with lousier weather. Never mind.
